Mango young plant wilting

Zone Guatemala | luis_marro added on August 9, 2018 | Answered

I have three mangoes grown from seed in 12 inches pots that are currently 3 months old. The leaves normally spread to the sides and separated from the stem, but suddenly the leaves wilted and now hang closer to the stem. The leaves look a healthy green and the plant continues to push new growth. Is the plant diseased or needing nutrients?

There is nothing wrong with it, other than needing a little water. They will naturally do this in response to heat, or dry weather to preserve moisture and cut respiration rate.
